Conference oi Baptists in
A very enthusiastic conference of
the Baptist denomination in the in
terests of the 75 Million Campaign,
was held in Columbia on Tuesday of
this week. Seven or eight associations
were represented, in one of them

being present. The auditorium of the
First Baptist church was filled with
Baptist preachers and laymen and
women of the Woman's Misionary
The northern assemblage of asso

These meetings were called by the
Secretary-Treasurer Dr. C. E. Burts,

In Greenville there were reported
about 300 delegates and a spirit of
determination was unanimous to go
. forward in the raising of every cent
of the pledges.
In the meeting in Columbia a won
derful faith and vision was displayed
by those present, and the same spirit
of sacrifice and devotion, and no
backward steps were entertained for
a moment. Plans were laid for im
mediate roganization of the churches
in all the associations.
Edgefield Association had four
representatives, Mr. Orlando Shep
pard, Rev. A. T. Allen, Mrs. J. L.
Mims and Rev. G. C. Mangum.
Among the pleasant words of com
mendation made by Dr. Burts was a
word for Gilgal Woman's Mission so
ciety. He said that Gilgal communi
ty in the Edgefield Association had
been one of the hardest hit of any
place in South Carolina, but in spite
of that he had received a check from
the women of that chorch for seven
ty-five dollars in payment of their
Fine addresses and informal talks
were made, and great inspiration was
derived from them, and just before
the noon hour the meeting broke up
in associational groups, some having
At the recess hour, in the Sunday
school room, about two hundred del
efates were seated for a bountiful
repast, furnished by the First Baptist
church and served by che lady mem
bers. Dr. Skinner, pastor, invited the
ladies to enter first and be seated
and the others followed.
There were many familiar faces
among those "being, Miss Jesse King-,
Mrs. George E. Davis, Mr. and Mrs.
T. B. Lanham, Mr. and Mrs. Henry
Bell White of Saluda, Mrs. J. P. Mc
Lean of Aiken, Rev. J. R. McKittrick
of Lexington association, who has
been pastor for several years of
.Edgefield churches, Lieut. Gov. E. B.
Jackson, who wast the enthusiastic
chairman of the Edisto Association
delegation, and Mrs. C. E. Burts,
who very graciously assisted in serv
ing the tables and gave the writer a
cup of coffee instead of cold water,
In His Name.
The afternoon session was short
and was given over to the reports
from the associations as to their ac
ceptance of the plans.
Through the kindness of Mr. A. J.
Bethea, I was driven to the station
in time to see the Winthrop Special
go out, and together we went through
each coach looking for the three
girls from Edgefield, Helen Nichol
son, Gertrude Thurmond and Susan
Adams, but they were nowhere to be
found, and we discovered later that
they had gone earlier in the day on
the train for Washington.
Among the pleasant meetings was
seeing some of the students from
Edgefield in Columbia. One of the
first was Frank Adams, who is in his
junior year at the University of
South Carolina, and whom we were
pleased to greet at the station. Later
Miss Agnes Long came down as a
member of the Y. W. C. A. cabinet
to greet the new students coming in
to the Columbia College. She made
an ideal hostess in this position of
making new students less homesick
and giving them a word of cheerful

climax was having the pleasure of
seeing Miss Mary Dorn and having
a conversation with her. Miss Mary is
one of the honored attaches of the

Seventy-Sixth Birthday of Mrs.
Hughey Beautifully Ob
The hospitable home of Mrs. M. C.
Hughey of Plum Branch, S. C., was,
last Saturday the scene of a happy
reunion to observe the "seventy-sixth
birthday of Mrs. Hughey.
Thc rare and beautiful love which
these children bear their mother was
evidenced in loving gifts, in a lavish
dinner and in tender solicitude for
the comfort and pleasure of the hon
oree of the occasion. With her
daughter, Mrs. JR T. West, Mrs.
Hughey received her guests in the
old Seigler home, where for many
years she had ministered with loving
care to her own mother, Mrs. Jane
Seigler who lived to be eighty-six
years of age. The hour suggested
both fulfillment and promise. "Hon
or thy father and thy mother; that
thy days may be long in the land
which the Lord, thy God, giveth
An attractive cake with seventy
six candles was an object of interest
to all, and even the smallest grand
children grasped the understanding
that the years had been many and
useful, and each year, like a' little
candle had shed its ray of light and
love. For Mrs. Hughey is a woman
whom to know is to love, and none
indeed may pass her way without re
ceiving a blessing. Here were gather
ed her children and grandchildren.

On the porch Carolyn Dorn and

all the little folks as they entered,
and this was a suggestive introduc
tion to what was coming later.
Misses Gladys Lyon, Genevieve
Norris and Fannie Lee Carter lent
their assistance in entertaining the
gay assemblage during the hours of
four to six when games were enjoyed
on the inside and later out of doors.
Each one was presented with a
handpainted.favor in golden rod de
sign, and the home was artistically
decorated in golden rod and mari
golds, the most appropriate and beau
tiful for the autumn season.
In the dining room a red color
scheme was used, the table being
decorated with a birthday cake with
five red candles and a Kupie dressed
in red in the center of the cake. Red
s'treamers were draped from the
lights above down to the table where
red zinnias and fems added to the
festive glow of the scene.
But the climax of it all was the
group of lovely children whose happy
and expectant faces lent a charm
more wonderful than could be pro
duced by anything earth can yield.

Card of Thanks.
To the Democratic Voters of Edge
The county papers went to press
so soon after the second primary
that I was unable to have a card of
thanks printed last week.
I wish to sincerely thank the vo

faithful service that I endeavored to
render during the past two sessions.
During the past campaign I made
straight, clean fight and did not in
dulge in personalities.
I wish to thank my friends who
worked so faithfully in the interest
of my candidacy.
I am deeply appreciative of the
many courtesies and hospitality ex
tended me in all sections of the coun

Plan Crop Rotations Now.
Clemson College, Sept. 18.-This
is a good time of year to plan a sys
tematic crop rotation and begin to
put it into operation. The wisdom of
using a crop rotation has been prov
en by numerous experiments and by
the experiences of our best farmers.
It is now more important than ever
before. Every farmer who has not
already done so should make a start
on. a rotation now, advises Prof. C.
P. Blackwell, Chief of the Agronomy
Land to be planted in small grains
can be planted now. Land to . be
planted in cotton next year should
be set aside now and should' be plow-'
ed deep this fall if it is a heavy soil,
and if it is a light soil it should be
plowed early in the spring. It should
be worked into a firm smooth seed
bed early in the spring in order to
give an early growth of cotton.
Land to be planted in corn next
year should be planted to a cover1
crop early this fall. If the land has
cotton on it this year, the cotton
stalks should be plowed under be
fore planting to imall grain as a cov
er , crop. .
